Ian and I love orange. When Pantone announced the 2012 color of the year as “Tangerine Tango” I was thrilled. Since it is already September [crazyyyy] I started to worry that the vibrant oranges were going to fade away when 2013 starts. I was thrilled to see the colors introduced in the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013. My favorite is Nectarine – a softer orange that reminds me of a creamsicle. Since I follow Pantone on twitter I found out about a super fun contest which inspired today’s roundup. I love when things can double for fun + blogging – that’s what it should be all about! You can read the rules and think about entering! The contest ends on September 27, at 12 pm PT.

What color is your favorite out of the Pantone Spring 2013 colors? Let me know and maybe I’ll feature it for a future Color Emphasis.
The truth is I’m not a huge fan of purple. There I said it – please don’t shoot me! You see it is one of the colors that I should LOVE since it complements my olive undertone complexion, green eyes and dark hair. I’m a girl who should ALWAYS wear purple yet I do not think I own anything purple. Can you believe that? I think I was terrified of looking like Barney – green eyes, purple outfit, sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. However, when I noticed the new Pantone 2013 Spring colors I saw this gorgeous shade called Rhapsody. Behold:
I can totally get down with this color. Plus I also received the nothing else metals Essie nail polish as a free perk on Klout. I gave it a shot and it is a beautiful metallic purple. I was pretty shocked how much I liked it. What do you think of rhapsody? Would you decorate with it, use cosmetics in this color or wear some clothes sporting this shade?
Pastels aren’t just for babies. They are softer versions of some of my favorite colors and they take on their own personality. I love when pastels are grouped together. Pastels can convey an effortless vintage feeling or they can look modern and fresh when paired with white [my favorite way].
